Lions injury update: Thumbs up on Alex Anzalone

USA Today

Alex Anzalone missed the Week 13 game with a thumb injury, one which the hirsute linebacker said he didn’t even know when he injured it. After the week off and some treatment, Detroit’s defensive captain is back.

For the second day in a row, Anzalone was a full participant in Lions practice. He appears fully ready to roll after his thumb injury, which he said “kept sliding in and out” of place toward the end of the Thanksgiving game against the Packers. Anzalone had a screw inserted into the thumb to stabilize the digit.

In fact, there was no change at all from Wednesday’s practice participation report. Center Frank Ragnow remains out with injuries to his knee, back and toe. This was not his customary veteran’s rest day; Ragnow is not expected to play in Chicago on Sunday.

Linebacker/fullback Malcolm Rodriguez was limited for the second straight day with an ankle injury.

The final injury report and game designation comes out after Friday’s practice.
